Concordia-Moorhead Closed

I'm relieved that my daughter, got home from Moorhead, Minnesota safely this evening. She attends Concordia College in Moorhead and has been sandbagging for a week (classes were cancelled). Water was shut off at the college earlier today, due to the Red River flooding. Later, the college closed completely and all students were told to leave tonight or tomorrow. They were told to pack for at least ten days. The college's website home page now is a Emergency Information Site.

This was the scene today in Moorhead, as she was leaving. To give you a glimpse of how fast the river is rising, look at the light pole in the pictures below.
